Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Belly Yoga" is a very high-quality, well-structured DVD that is a reasonable length of time (about 40 minutes warmup/intro to cooldown), and, more importantly, fuses bellydance and yoga together quite well. The DVD menu has 3 options: The ABCs of Bellydance (in which Rania gives a super-crash course on some core movements of bellydance); the workout; and a nice performance in which Rania dances to a less traditional song while balancing a sword. Ideally, this should not be your first ever bellydance DVD, as the "ABCs" segment is so brief and fast-paced, you proabably will not come away with much. But hey, I guess it's better than nothing!
This DVD blends bellydance and athletic-oriented yoga (no spiritual journeying here), and, in my opinion, this is where Rania shines. Do I personally feel she is the BEST bellydancer out there? No. But I do think she is better than many, and her love and knowledge of fitness are 2nd to none. Her cardio BD programs will ACTUALLY get your heart rate up. Her BD strength /conditioning programs will ACTUALLY get you in shape. This DVD, like many of her programs, is not really designed to teach you bellydance so much as it is to USE bellydance to work out. "Belly Yoga" is designed to improve your flexibility and strength. And upon participating in the program, I must say that it is one of the best stretching DVDs currently in my possession!
Rania is the lone participator in the program, and is dressed in a black (quite unusual!) one-piece leotard with cut-outs. She is filmed on a simple but quite relaxing and pleasant indoor set with a yoga mat. The overall production quality of this DVD is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nicely paced even for older people February 12, 2010
Format:DVD
I am 59 yrs old and have been using this DVD for only 3 weeks and I feel so much better already.
I have regained some of my flexibility and balance. Rania goes at a slow enough pace in the yoga
section that even though its been over 20 yrs since I have done any yoga.......it is making an impact
on my health!

The previous reviewer did a good job stating what yoga moves & the simple set of this dvd.
This seems a middle-quality production, w/Rania speaking w/a mic (here & there her voice is louder when she points her head down) which really helps her better then her old Bellydance Fitness for Weight loss series dvd w/the voice over. I think her only problem is she thinks too much & needs more to do like speaking & moving to get rid of her stiffness. I've actually seen youtube clips of her sometimes fluid. Here, with less emphasis on perfection, she allows a few verbal mistakes & even makes a few jokes, which is pleasantly surprising. Occasionally she gets a little stiff, such as when just adding snake arms to yoga move she does them well, but when explaining them, they don't look as well. Bu nowhere near like her Bellydnce Fitness series. If she makes more dvds, she should stick to this formula of not being a perfectionist for every word she says or move she makes.
The content I'm not as happy with.
The music is very light, but has bellydance music qualities to it & is nice & slow tempo. The bellydance is mixed back & forth with the yoga poses. The yoga moves aren't done in sequence that makes you feel stretched out, and the teaching is far too short. You should know all basic bellydance & yoga moves by heart. What verbal clues she gives are wonderful, such as a seated wide angle pose to the side, to feel the stretch more, she reminds you to keep the hip rooted on the opposite side & I felt a huge difference. She did not have enough time to really get into more then 1-2 cues per move. There was too much child's pose even after say a reclined spinal twist that did not seem needed.
